While we might think that it's easy for our brain to take breaks while we are studying or to avoid doing something hard, this is not RESTING. This is not the same as the rest and recovery we need to prioritize when it comes to the goals we are trying to progress in. So today on the podcast, I am sharing how to be okay with rest, how to not define your “worth” by doing, and how to be intentional so you can maximize your growth as a human being and not get setback by the burnout inevitable in not planning your rest and recovery.

“When you have someone who owes you money and the only obstacle is you providing an invoice or payment link, then THAT is your highest priority right now.” You just returned to your office after a week away working on-site with clients. You take one look at the “to-dos” waiting for you and feel overwhelmed with no idea where to begin. That ☝️ happened to one of my clients. And she asked for my help isolating what to prioritize at that moment in her business. So I created a framework called “What's closest to the money?” to help her (and all of my clients) feel productive and revenue-generating by focusing on – you guessed it – the tasks that would bring money quickly into the business. It's a framework I use daily and is one you can use when you feel like you're unfocused or when you're financially stressed. (And keep in mind money stress is less about how much you're actually earning - and more about your fluctuating money thermostat.) This episode of Profitable Joyful Consulting will help you determine what to work on in your business so you feel both productive and better financially. And because I don't want you floundering in work that isn't revenue-generating, I also share some “far from the money” tasks that disguise themselves as money-making. Key ideas: 00:00 Introduction 02:16 How to get “stuck money” moving to your bank account 03:44 Don't fall for this (it's not a commitment) 05:44 Ways to generate revenue quickly 07:05 Make a habit of doing these activities 09:29 Avoid rabbit-hole comfort zones 10:06 When to put on your own oxygen mask 11:09 Minimize these time-sucking tasks 11:58 Bonus: Once you've done all of the above, do this Get out of overwhelm and into productive money-making quickly when you implement the “What's closest to the money?” framework outlined in this episode of Profitable Joyful Consulting.

In this episode, Baylor discusses the importance of mental preparation and visualization for big events or milestones. He emphasizes the need to shift focus to mental preparation after physical preparation, and suggests adopting a 'race week' mentality. Baylor shares his personal practice of detailed visualization and mental rehearsal of different scenarios. He also highlights the importance of nutrition and hydration, and the concept of tapering, a gradual reduction in training intensity for recovery and peak performance. Baylor encourages listeners to balance pushing oneself and taking necessary breaks.
Meditation: Breathing Our Way to Peace & Freedom - This meditation guides us in collecting attention with an intentional long deep breath, and awakening a full relaxed presence as the breath resumes in its natural rhythm. Resting fully in this presence is the gateway to deep peace and inner freedom. “Little breath breathe me gently, row me, for I am the river I am learning to cross.” – W.S. Merwin

If you'd like an easy ad-free experience for all of our podcasts - that's over 200 episodes each month, then JOIN PREMIUM today at https://WomensMeditationNetwork.com/premium Relax into your bed, beautiful. You deserve its tenderness. Because no matter what happened today, Or how you feel, It's time to be kind to yourself, And wrap yourself in the blankets of deep self-love. The raindrops of self-judgement can come down hard, Beginning with tiny little drops, That barely breeze your face. Almost like whispers grazing your ears, Full of shoulds and supposed to's. But soon the rain begins pouring down, And the drops fall down hard, Drenching you from head to toe with feelings of less than. PAUSE… But tonight, it's time to stop the rain and dry your soul, Refusing to let one more drop of self-judgement or harshness come upon you, And instead, infuse yourself with deep, unconditional kindness. PAUSE… So let yourself go right now, my love, Falling deeper into your bed as you slowly release all the tension from your body. Feeling any stress or tension leave your eyes, Your cheeks, Your shoulders, Your chest, Your stomach, Your arms and your legs. Relax and release, Relax and release. PAUSE… Notice the soothing rhythms of your breathing As they call you further into comfort. Slowing you down, Down, Down, And bringing you here. Away from those thoughts, Away from all those stories of what should be, Away from any emotions that may be weighing you down. PAUSE… Breathe, And be here, Feeling your body relaxed, Feeling your mind relaxed, Feeling your entire spirit relaxed. PAUSE… Imagine those blankets of kindness gently covering you. They're simultaneously cool and refreshing, And warm and comforting, As they cover you tonight. You are so special, The night whispers to you. And you are pure love. PAUSE… Feel your blankets of kindness get just a bit heavier, Wrapping all of you in their embrace. You don't have to do anything to be loved, You don't have to be anyone other than who you are right now. So let yourself receive the gentle touch of kindness tonight, As you ease into deep sleep. PAUSE… Let go of the expectations. Let go of the tasks. Let go of the shoulds. Let go of the judgements. Let go of the regrets, Let go of it all… And let your raw soul be embraced by all the kindness surrounding you. PAUSE… You are love. You are beautiful. You are extraordinary. You are light. You are powerful. You are special. PAUSE… Breathe in deeply, And let the blankets of kindness cover you tonight, And remind you of who you are. Without the opinions of the outside world, But with the confident, gentle voice of your soul. PAUSE… Now be here under your blankets, my love, Resting deeply, And feeling the warmth of a gentle arm hugging you. Feel her softly squeezing you, Whispering silently that you are whole. Just as you are now. PAUSE… Let yourself melt into her embrace, And guide you into the safe, soothing stillness of deep sleep. Sweet Dreams, Beautiful.

This episode is a recast from 2022, aired at the same time of year last year. You guys loved it then, and I loved it too! It was such a fun episode to record. I just finished listening to the whole thing on a walk before I re-recorded the intro. I decided to re-air it because it's as relevant now as it was a year ago. Let's talk about what this episode is and then dive right into it. Today's episode is a fun friend-to-friend chat about Christmas, and I am certainly bringing the Christmas ENERGY in this episode. I'm totally a “Christmas person” and I start getting excited about Christmas in July typically (not kidding). But, let's talk about the elephant in the room… Resting and actually taking time off for the holidays doesn't always come easy as business owners. There's often a lot to do to “close out the year” and at the same time you're ready to dream about the next year in your business, PLUS you have the everyday to do's of life to keep up with. You also might be listening to this right after Black Friday which can be really exhausting as a business owner. Resting and slowing down can feel really hard. That's what we're talking about today. I'm sharing with you: 1. My time-off and rest strategy for Christmas that I do basically every year, and how you can do this yourself as well! (We're talking PRACTICAL planning here!) 2. Holiday bucket list ideas for you to do to strengthen your faith and enjoy the month of December, even in its chaos. 3. Tradition ideas – I was a NEW mom when this first aired, and even still I don't have tons of traditions to share for with kiddos. But, I am sharing some traditions you could try with your spouse that we do and some family tradition ideas I love! 4. I'm sharing Advent resources, books, other podcast episodes, and things I think will help you out as you plan your own holiday season. So, that is our agenda. This is a GOOD EPISODE, if you often tell me that you wish I did more personal content – this is it. I'm excited to chat. Go get a peppermint mocha, a sugar cookie latte, or some wine and let's dive into it!

This week, meditation teacher Ed Halliwell guides you through "A Guided Meditation for Resting in the Flow," inviting you to envision the human experience as a flowing river—comprised of countless moving droplets forming a dynamic stream. Just as a river undergoes continuous change while maintaining a sense of continuity through well-worn grooves, our lives follow established patterns set by past events. By becoming attuned to the flow and the grooves, we can relax into the journey, gaining clarity that empowers us to skillfully navigate the current. Ed introduces the practice of resting in the flow, offering a meditation that aligns with the metaphor of the river, encouraging a deeper connection with the ever-changing currents of our existence.

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. — Psalm 91:4 Psalm 91 shows that God, “the Almighty,” is not intimidating or frightening. Instead, God is so gentle and concerned for everyone that they can find refuge in him like hatchlings under the care of a hen. As God's people, we can trust the Lord fully because he will surround us, guard us against dangerous threats, and deliver us. Resting in the shadow of God's protective wings means that we don't need to be afraid of chaotic things happening around us. There is a time for us to walk courageously into situations with God's help, and there is a time to retreat and be still in his caring presence. If you ever have the privilege of watching chicks take cover under a hen's wings, you'll see that they stay very still and quiet, completely out of view of danger, while the hen is alert and watchful and will do whatever she can to protect her young. Jesus uses similar imagery when he expresses his desire to gather up the people of Jerusalem and protect them (Luke 13:34). He is gentle and makes space for us near to his heart. Lord, help us constantly to stay close to you so that when danger threatens, we will be safe in your care. Gather us in and hold us close. Amen.

Welcome to Day 2239 of Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me. This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom Hebrews-6 Stop Churning and Start Resting – Daily Wisdom Putnam Church Message – 05/21/2023 “Stop Churning and Start Resting” Hebrews 4:1-11 Last week, we continued our extended series through the book of Hebrews in the New Testament. We learned that we should Beware of a Hard Heart caused by neglecting to follow God, which will prevent us from entering into His rest. Today in Hebrews 4:1-11 we will extend that thought as we learn how to Stop Churning and Start Resting. Let's begin by reading today's passage on pages 1865-1866 in the Pew Bibles. 1 Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. 2 For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed.[a] 3 Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said, “So I declared on oath in my anger, ‘They shall never enter my rest.'”[b] And yet his works have been finished since the creation of the world. 4 For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in these words: “On the seventh day God rested from all his works.”[c] 5 And again in the passage above he says, “They shall never enter my rest.” 6 Therefore since it still remains for some to enter that rest, and since those who formerly had the good news proclaimed to them did not go in because of their disobedience, 7 God again set a certain day, calling it “Today.” This he did when a long time later he spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.”[d] 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. 9 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; 10 for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from their works,[e] just as God did from his. 11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one...
Growing up as the son of author and composer BB Johnson AKA Joseph Greene (Together Brothers, Across the Alley from the Alamo) DaVon and Greene (the pen name of Jonathan Greene) knew writing was in his blood.Drawn towards cartels, crime, and drugs DaVon and Greene completed his first serious undertaking in his early teens and gave it to his father's friend, Saul David (Director: Logan's Run and Fantastic Voyage) to get an honest critique. Saul was intrigued, but wasn't overwhelmed. His critique sent DaVon and Greene's life into a whole other direction, putting down the pen and entering the world that he wrote about in an endless cycle that there was no escape from, ultimately leading to incarceration. After jail, employment was hard to find, so when DaVon and Greene's now wife offered him a job interview at a beer company he seized the opportunity. Working hard he rose through the ranks with promotion after promotion. Within six months DaVon and Greene was on a six figure salary.Several years later, DaVon and Greene's beer career came to a halt when the company was sold. So DaVon and Greene started flipping Real Estate which provided him with a life filled with fast cars, boats and houses, until the crash of 2007.Not to be defeated, DaVon and Greene turned to insurance, then consulting before starting a successful trucking business. Resting in his truck at night gave DaVon and Greene time to write and finally fulfil his dream to become an author. Thriller, Laredo Nuevo was published in 2021 and Paladin will be released later this year.DaVon and Greene is father to eight children and five grandchildren. When he's not writing or trucking across the country Jonathan can be found in California where he lives with his wife.www.davonandgreene.comInstagram: @davon_and_greeneTikTok: @jwperkinsgroup

SON OF ABRAHAM & DAVID It was in that eternal covenant that the cosmic kingdom of glory was guaranteed to the Son as the reward for his faithful execution of the work the Father gave him to do (cf. Luke 22:29; John 17:4,5). This covenantal commitment to the Son was renewed in the course of the historical administration of the Covenant of Grace. It came to earthly expression in Abrahamic and Davidic covenants Christ was the promised seed of Abraham for whom pertained the promise of kingship and kingdom. (Gal 3:16) and Christ was the son of David to whom the dynastic promises of the Davidic covenant were directed. What Zech 6:9-15 prophesies is the Father's fulfillment of the eternal covenant by bestowing the promised kingdom grant on the son who came to earth as Jesus, the Christ of God, the son of David (Jesse), the son of Abraham (Shem) (Mat 1:1), and obediently carried out the stipulated task. ABRAHAMIC SEED PH10 DOUBLE HELIX DAVIDIC TO SOLOMONIC TRANSGENERATIONAL SUCCESSION PH11 XIIM [A Davidic heart (image restored|Integrity) inside a Solomons body (likeness restored|Wisdom)] He will build me a house, and I will make his dynasty permanent. (X2M.117 Permutare) X2M.144 RECAP S2: 2 Samuel 5:4-5 NET “David was thirty years old when he began to reign and he reigned for forty years. In Hebron he reigned over Judah for seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem he reigned for thirty-three years over all Israel and Judah.” tour de force 1. an exceptional achievement by an artist, author, or the like, that is unlikely to be equaled by that person or anyone else; stroke of genius. 2. a particularly adroit maneuver or technique in handling a difficult situation. 3. a feat requiring unusual strength, skill, or ingenuity. In an interesting corollary, Rosenberg associates the House of David with the Garden of Eden story in Genesis. He argues that the Garden represents the Davidic Court; that the lines of original kinship between man and beast parallel that between the king and the tribes of Israel; that the loss of the early ideal era of David's rule is Israel's 'paradise lost'. In both Garden and Court, obedience to divine will and reconciliation with one's kin are required in order to hold on to the divinely mandated territory."' What is most provoking about this allegory is that the Garden is antecedent to history. If 'the king in his "Garden" is, like the primordial human being, subject to test, change, and decay', he is clearly not in some timeless paradise. Rather, he is continually confronted by time and his own imperfections. YHWH's promise of perpetuity is, by definition, conceivable only across generations. Yet, the king 'hoards the competence to govern ... his usefulness to Israel, in other words, is limited by his inability to establish continuity with, and transmission of knowledge to, the next generation" Resting on the abilities of mere humans, then, the king's house appears destined to fail. The allegory is instructive, providing the perfect model for which the king and subjects might strive, but a symbolic return to the Davidic ideal is no more possible than a return to the Garden; as long as mankind exists in time, it simply cannot be. Of course, this argument has grave import for the messianic promise. The return of the Davidic kingdom could not, in this scenario, be everlasting without YHWH's direct participation in the necessary reconciliation of peoples.

In this final episode of our Flora & Faith series, we meet two biblical characters who come to the end of themselves in the same wilderness south of Beersheba. “Wilderness” is more than just a place on a map. It's also a territory of the soul where all our safety nets get removed, and our only hope is to depend on God. It's here that God uses a small desert shrub to deliver a potent message of hope. By the end of this episode, you'll have a new appreciation for the way small graces become huge gifts when we come to the end of ourselves.

Rest is who we are beneath the noise. It is a sensing silence that sits beneath the pressure to maintain perceptions, manage expectations, and ceaselessly strive to be, do, and have more. And it can be hard to come by in our loud and fast-paced world. In this week's episode of The Gentle Rebel Podcast, I share a conversation with Rashid Hughes who I discovered via The Compassion Revolution. Rashid seeks to bridge the worlds of contemplative practice and collective care. I was drawn to his suggestion that if we only see practices as an individual thing, we miss the transformative role they play in the collective body. He describes a "great bypass" that leaves us in a feedback loop of striving for a state of unreal perfection. The noise of this restless pursuit is gently quietened through restful inquiry. In our conversation we explore: Rashid's Four Pillars of Rest and how we might engage with them. (R)elax the grip of goals, expectations, and becoming (E)xhale all the striving to be something else (S)ense the silence and stillness (T)une into awareness of who you are beneath your thoughts "I stand firm, ten toes down, in saying that inquiring into the beingness of being and learning to rest there consciously, is one emergent pathway to beholding the world with new eyes." - Rashid Hughes We talked about using accountability to reflect our vision and values. When our awareness and attention is opened to certain elements or ways of seeing, accountability is the feeling of being aligned and in sync with that part of ourselves. In other words, whether our vision and actions reflect each other. We also explored the implications of focussing on becoming at the expense of being. And how this sense of separation from ourselves and one another can lead us down deceptively destructive paths. Rest in Being as an Ocean Wave I share a journal reflection I wrote in preparation for the conversation, in which I played with the image of rest as the rhythm of waves on a shoreline. Some are big, some are small. Sometimes there isn't much going on at all. Ritual is like that. Whether it be a spiritual or creative practice - somewhere we gather together or somewhere I retreat in solitude. Over time waves change landscapes but even if one wave causes a landslide, this is still just one moment among many. We can get stuck in the spirit of doing. Chasing moments that can't be captured. We run down to the ocean with a jar and catch the wave. Do we have possession of a wave? If we show it to someone else they will just see water. The wave is no longer there. The wave is uncontainable rhythm. It's a beat. A moment. Something that can't be appropriated or owned. No two waves hold the same water even though they might take a similar form in appearance. Each of these moments is unique in that sense. That is what ritual is to me. We live in a world that expects, demands, and wants to possess what can't be detained. As soon as it enters the jar, the wave ceases to be a wave. This rings true to many aspects of life. What do we miss when we're busy thinking of new ways to control the flow within, around, and between us? Connect with Rashid through his website and on Instagram. Join The Conversation

We all tend to make an idol of work. The Catechism teaches us that Sunday is a day of grace and rest from work. Fr. Mike explains what holy leisure looks like, emphasizing the importance of spending time with family, serving the poor, and taking time to meditate and pray. Resting on the Sabbath reminds us that our freedom and identity are found in the Lord. Today's readings are Catechism paragraphs 2184-2195. This episode has been found to be in conformity with the Catechism by the Institute on the Catechism, under the Subcommittee on the Catechism, USCCB.
